Obsolete Advancements was produced by Emlyn Ellis Addison in 2011.
The tracks "Obsolete Advancements", "Blueprint Primitives" and "Prediction Horizontals" were originally conceived as sister works, sharing a common quartal harmonic structure and compound meters. Each one explores the effects of homogenous instrumentation, focusing on discrete timbral characteristics of struck, bowed and plucked stringed instruments (piano, harpsichord, viola), single and double reed instruments (harmonium, harmonica, accordion, clarinet, English horn, reed organ), and electronic waveforms and sound treatments that best complemented them.
